Fukui-Shirakawago-Kisoji

English Japanese



I found new friend T-san through facebook. He likes travel like me, but he have not been Fukui yet, he decided come to Fukui by car.

Usually, I don’t add un-meet friend on facebook but his case was rare, so I added.

It means, it will the first time we meet!

Actually, I have met some people who like my website or book, and couch surfing is always first meeting, you know.

Anyway, he will come to see me by car so long distance about 600km.
I wanna make myself up better as a sign of politeness.

So I did something before he came!
* I did jogging for 5km everyday, then I lost 3kg!
* I did whitening for my teeth!
* I removed hair from arm, leg and face!
* I checked white hair from all sides!
* I checked nose hair from all sides!
* I used eyelash lotion to make long as much as possible!
* I did face mask to make my skin more beautiful!
* I chose/bought/made cute clothes for the day!
* I bought new cosmetic!
* I slept enough!

Yep, I believe I could make myself up very good.
You’d be better doing something like me when you meet new people(LOL)

My place, Fukui is not good at transportation, so we need car.
T-san took paid holiday, he left Chiba on 1am then he got to near my place on 8:30am.
He is awesome! He is like a long distance bus driver(LOL).

So we travel around Fukui by his car~***

He didn’t say anything about my looks though…anyway!

We went to Japan sea fisherman’s town for lunch.
There was morning market, we did some tastings and walked around.
We were seeing cheap shrimps on box, then fisherman said 2 box for same price!

Wow, good deal! But we haven’t eaten lunch yet, so we tried to come back there later though, fisherman added many stuffs!

Eventually,
